2019-20 Season: Final season grades are complete; results are in!

It is now time to crown our yearly champions.  We will be crowning two champions again this year.  Our first champion is picking games straight up and our second champion is for picking games against the spread.  Obviously not everyone below qualifies to be champion if they didn’t pick enough games.  My general rule is a minimum 100 games picked to be on the ballot.  Once we have all the finalists selected, our panel of voters decides our champions.  As always, our panel of voters consists of myself, a glass of bourbon, a box of Cheezits, and our cat Charley.

Without further adieu, I present to you our 2019-20 season results and yearly champions.  Our champion picking games straight up, coming in at 71.96% over 271 games is none other than noted football expert and my wife, @GamedayJen!  Our ATS champion, coming in at 58.78% over 131 games picked, is none other than the big time football reporter Pete Thamel!  Congratulations to you both, and look for a congratulatory basket of assorted bourbon and Cheezits which is being shipped to you as we speak!

Thank you all for tuning in for another season of football picks, and we will see you next season.
